Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will reportedly reenter the political sphere by speaking at the New York state Democrat Convention in late February.

Hillary will attend the convention at the Sheraton hotel in Times Square, CNBC reported, sparking “new speculation that she could run for the nation’s highest office again.”

A source told CNBC Hillary’s popularity is greater than President Biden’s, and suggested that speaking at the event will be useful to her, as it puts her in the spotlight.

“She’s beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party and her popularity is likely higher than that of President Biden. It’s good for her because it keeps her relevant and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience,” the source said.

When Biden visited Georgia in January to speak about federalizing elections, gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams did not attend his event due to a scheduling conflict. Gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke stated last week he is “not interested” in help from Biden during his Texas campaign.

Pennsylvania Democrats John Fetterman and Josh Shapiro on Thursday cited conflicts in their schedules for their absence during Biden’s visit to Pennsylvania.

Democrat candidates in Iowa and North Carolina have even stopped talking or tweeting about Biden. Moreover, Democrat Governors Association chair and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) completely avoided the question when asked about Biden’s role in the governors’ campaigns.

If Hillary is thinking about running in 2024, she will have to raise money. She has been advertising a hat for $30 and coffee mugs for $20.

“Take a sip from your new mug as you read the news…,” Hillary tweeted a photo of the mug and a headline that slammed Donald Trump.
